Officials said Saturday that Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, a vocally anti-impeachment Democrat, will join the Republican Party in the coming days following a Friday meeting with President Trump a move that would put a political chill on the Democrats expected vote to impeach Trump next week.
Two Democratic officials familiar with Van Drews discussions in recent days said they believe he has decided to switch parties. The White House meeting was confirmed by a Trump administration official and one of the Democratic officials.

Is there a list of House representatives from the past 60 years who switched parties in the middle of their terms?
Well...hell CERTAINLY win re-election now!
Apparently Jeff has some integrity.
When politicians start switching parties that is a big deal. They are smart enough to see the handwriting on the wall.
The optics are DEVASTATING for the rats. The last few sane rats want no part of the suicide and are jumping ship. CNN and Soros are deeply saddened.
This also puts the GOP one step closer to taking the House back. They don’t have to invest in a fight here now.
That and/or knows on which side his bread is buttered. Plus there’s the sinking ship thing.
Id rather he wait until after the impeachment vote, so history will record that not even all Democrats voted for it. But this is still good.
Van Drew says “screw this” and joins the GOP. Thoughts?
No, Nancy has not freed her caucus to vote their conscience.
They are whipping as hard as they can just to get the 218.
Wow, thought only weak-kneed Republicans switched parties, not the other way around. Unless it was just never reported before
When I read “switch” and “democrat”, I thought naturally about these fag lovers changing genders...
But this is surprisingly hilarious.
To me this is a major development.
A stick in the eye of Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, et. al.
Now, how many more have integrity and are not compromised?
LET’S FACE IT:
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME MORE DERANGED, DELUSIONAL AND JUST PLAIN NUTS SINCE...LAST YEAR EVEN.
It’s like they all fell into a Snake Pit and came up with the Snakes.
This man is not a turncoat...the STUPID DEM PARTY has turned away from sanity.
WITH GREAT HELP FROM THE NAUSEATING MSM.
We’ll give them Kasich as a consolation prize.

If I was one of those 31 Democrats in a House district that Trump won in 2016, I would be seriously thinking about changing my party affiliation right now.
If this happens Pigs Will Fly!!
“Apparently Jeff has some integrity.”
Another Rino in the making. It is most likely that in his heart then he will always be a democrat.
